Big Black SpinelI've gotten single stones in the past as well as previous parcels and these are just as good. The parcel had mostly rounds and ovals with one large square cushion and two matched trillions. March 08, 2015

Great parcelOk normally I do not care for parcels. With that being said I have been in need of a round black spinel and have not had much luck. I went to my local jeweler ( aka...personal friend) and he said the only one he could find was an 8 mm round cabochon that was checkerboard cut on top and it would cost $50.00 ...um...NO! I got this parcel had 21 stones smallest was 10 mm round, smallest oval 10x8. Largest round 16 mm and largest oval was 12x10 had some 13 mm trillions and 11 mm cushion...so I got this while on sale and the price per stone is $4.76 and all stones was larger then what my jeweler friend could find and WAY LESS $$$$. It's a no brainier...GET THE PARCEL January 24, 2015

This is a great dealThe stones in this parcel were excellent cut and large in size. The smallest stone was a 9X7 mm oval the largest a 14mm round. About half the stones were round in this parcel the other half were ovals. There was one square cushion shape and one 12x12mm trillion shape.

Compared to the "Full Price" spinels........many of these are NOT well cut, and that is what I liked about black spinels--their unique look with a nice cut. With that being said, the value is certainly there, There were several nicely cut pieces, one fancy cut piece that is $20 on closeout, EXCEPT there were a number (adding up to more than 20 cts) of stones with big chips. Unusable except for decorating the bottom of the trash can. Still, a parcel worth purchasing, but with only free shipping and not a penny more on price. January 16, 2015
